LFW Day 1: Exhibition Una Burke

This collection really stood out to us in the exhibition, we loved the armour type body piece, especially the shoulders, its got a great edge and is just an extremely striking collection.

Bastet is Una Burke's SS12 Collection. The inspiration behind the collection comes from Ancient Egyptians, Una studied procedures used in mummification and looking at the reasons behind them to creating almost a modern armour collection out of leathers.

The idea of mummification was to protect and aid the soul in the passing through the afterlife and be reborn. The bodice piece is to protect the heart for example.

"Bastet" the name of this collection was an Egyptian Goddess who was regarded as the protector of Lower Egypt making it a great title for the collection.
